WordPress Security

Every day, some scary article or Facebook post about a major site being hacked or a sensitive database being compromised hits the web and everyone is code red. Did you know that Google blacklists over 6,000 malware-infected websites a day? Consider the ramifications of your website being blacklisted tomorrow. Might hinder your traffic a bit, no? Securing your WordPress site is one of the most critical aspects of starting your online presence and growing it to the next level. As your site becomes more popular and garners the attention of new consumers, it also becomes a more attractive target for hackers and people who are up to no good. While there is no silver bullet when it comes to securing a site, there are several things that can be done to make it less likely that your site will be compromised. When I first launched Keekee360design.com some 6 years ago, I couldn’t have told you the difference between DDOS and Mike Doss. I was among the ranks of those who used the same password for all my accounts … and my bank account … and, you get the idea. Over time, I have learned the importance of taking security seriously.… Read More»

Designing a logo for your business can often be a challenging task – involving time, resources and internal debate. A good logo sets the stage for your company’s visual brand for years to come. Your logo is the foundation of your brand. Your logo’s design not only influences how your customers (and the rest of the world) perceive your brand—it also dictates the colors, fonts, and graphics that will be used in your marketing materials. From email signatures all the way up to your website, your logo design holds power. So what is a Logo? Your logo is a symbol, sign, wordmark or emblem. Logos tend to be graphical in nature, designed for easy recognition of an organization across different mediums.     What is Brand? A brand is the idea or image of a specific product or service that consumers connect with, by identifying the name, logo, slogan, or design of the company. Branding is when that idea or image is marketed so that it is recognizable by more and more people, and identified with a certain service or product when there are many other companies offering the same service or product. Simply, your brand is the emotional and… Read More»

How to get away with Branding

logo design, web design , website deisgn, social media management, website maintence, website hack repair, SEO, grapgic design , huntsville, al , ga, tn. miss, huntsville

Branding is the process of aligning the opinions people hold about your brand with the set of thoughts you want them to believe and trust. Apple has done an excellent job of branding its’ company and changing the rules along the way. Apple blew up the rules of branding because Steve Jobs simply didn’t follow the traditional rules, and he never did what he was supposed to do. He knew that someone else’s success wouldn’t be his own, because it’s a fact that imitating others has never resulted in great successes. It’s just great flattery. The rules that criminal-law professor Annalise Keating tells her students to follow if they want to win a case on the hit TV show, How to get away with murder is: Discredit the witness. Find a new suspect. Bury the evidence. Through the television series there are several lessons learned by the student. In this article, we will take the same approach; so pay attention. At the end of the quarter, a grade will be given and it will be measured by the implementation of these rules and the success of your brand. Trust the witness Good branding starts with people aka your witness. People… Read More»

The Contemplative Artworks of Elicia Edijanto

The Contemplative Artworks of Elicia Edijanto PauloGabriel One thing I love about art is that an illustration is like a window into an artist’s mind, soul, or whatever you might call it. Some artworks and paintings are super happy, with bright, colorful details right at your face. Some others express deep meaning through fewer elements and simpler colors. Elicia Edijanto is one of those artists that tell us a lot through her artworks. From Jakarta, Indonesia, she comes up with these beautiful illustrations that are so contemplative that it might reach the deepest corner of one’s soul and have an effect on it. This is the kind of art that makes you trip, wonder, dream, all at once, wherever you are. Something very powerful indeed… well, some might say that art is a weapon of mass destruction. Destruction of an ugly, lifeless world. Let there be art, let there be more of Elicia’s beautiful mind. Elicia’s artworks For more of Elicia’s artworks, please visit her personal website, Instagram or portfolio at Behance! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. 😉 illustration artworks black and white handmade

Fauxsaics: a Series of Typographic Mosaic Illustrations

Fauxsaics: a Series of Typographic Mosaic Illustrations AoiroStudio We are sharing a typographic series that just makes you go Wow! just by its splendid concept and even more about the execution. Have you ever took a picture of a mosaic tile composition and try to position the shot with your shoes? I know I did! That’s basically the concept behind Fauxsaics , a series of typographic mosaic illustrations designed by New York-based designer Nicholas Misani. What I love about this series is not only there’s a good amount of work in the typography, there’s also even more details to the mosaic as well. These are the kind of projects we love seeing on Abduzeedo! Behind this fun series is the stunning work from Nicholas Misani who is a designer based in New York, USA. Passionate about typography and calligraphy; he’s also working at Louise Fili Ltd as a senior designer. A place where he gets and as I quote: “create quintessentially Italian, historically-inspired design and lettering every day”. Fauxsaics are lettering-based, mosaic illustrations where the form is dictated by the limitations of traditional mosaic technique. Typography illustration

Beautiful 3D projects in Low Poly Modeling

Beautiful 3D projects in Low Poly Modeling abduzeedo Mohamed Chahin is a 3D artist from Alexandria, Egypt with an incredible portfolio full of 3D projects and compositions that are just awesome. I love his Low Poly personal challenges like the 30 Days of Low Poly which is always been featured at Dribbble. There’s a lot to love about his work, the color palettes, the simplicity and especially how clever the comps are. In terms of tools, he seems to use Blender, which is a free 3D tool. That makes it even more compelling and exciting for us willing to jump on the 3D train. If you are interested in learning more about his process, Mohamed Chahin shared some super useful time-lapse videos of on some of his 3D projects pages on Behance. It gives a good overview of the level of details and how long it takes to get to the results he get. At the end of the day is totally worth it. 3D projects 3d low poly

1 Min Illustrator & Photoshop Tutorials by Adobe Creative Cloud

1 Min Illustrator & Photoshop Tutorials by Adobe Creative Cloud abduzeedo May 05, 2017 When we started Abduzeedo we focused a lot on design tutorials, especially Photoshop tutorials. Later we started adding more tools like Illustrator, Pixelmator and others. That was 10 years ago and there weren’t many resources where people could find content on those subjects. Nowadays, it’s much easier, you can find Photoshop training videos, Illustrator from well-known professionals, including the mighty folks over at Adobe, the mastermind behind the most popular design software in the world. Today, I noticed that they have an amazing Youtube channel called Adobe Creative Cloud and they have already shared some very useful videos with Illustrator and Photoshop tutorials. The quality of the videos is incredible, they are short, 1 minute walkthroughs explaining interesting techniques to create 3D typography, double exposure effects, composite effects. Everything is really well done. I think they made all the other tutorials sort of obsolete after that. Below you can see the videos.

A Peak inside the Cinematography of Blade Runner 2049 AoiroStudio May 09, 2017 Cinematography is part of being an art, being able to create a synergistic atmosphere for the audience is key to a motion picture.

Blade Runner 2049 will be released on October 6, 2017. The movie is taking place 30 years after the events from the first movie where a new blade runner (Ryan Gosling) somehow goes on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who has been missing for the last three decades.

Production Design & Photography for SGD Newsletter

Production Design & Photography for SGD Newsletter AoiroStudio May 12, 2017 The BTS of this feature hasn’t been done in CGI, it’s all production design and photography. This time around it was for SGD for which it stands for: Small Green Door and their set designs. As being a full interactive studio, they are basing their services on a few key words: “design, shoot, develop, and grow”. Because of the non-use of CGI, it was definitely interesting to see the work behind and what happened to trick the results into something quite unique. Behind this work, we are looking at the team from Small Green Door who is a creative studio based in Los Angeles, California, USA. They are a small team but it doesn’t mean they aren’t properous; on the contrary it turned out pretty well. I would suggest to check out their site at smallgreendoor.com. This branding campaign is based on SGD’s four basic creative services: design, shoot, develop, and grow. The task communicates the idea behind each category in a fresh and unique way. By using color as an initial focal point, the process began with selecting specific color palettes that could relate and communicate our four… Read More»
